members, but i think of john lindsay who basically was laughed out of office after one of these snowstorms, i think of jane bern in chicago, mayor nagin in new orleans. they blew it. >> you don't want ever want this to happen on your watch if you're a mayor or elected official and you don't want it to happen on your watch to some degree because of politics, but those folks were laughed out of office so to speak because they didn't deliver the services that are the most core and most basic that their taxpayers pay for. this is what you show up to do every day if you're a municipal employee or elected official is things like this at the base. if you can't do this, people do have a right to be angry. >> okay. thank you so much, christine quinn, speaker of the house -- speaker of the city council in new york city. up next, the latest as hurricane sandy, what a strangely nice name for this horror, back with more in a minute on sandy. >>> hurricane sandy is expected to make landfall within the next hour or so in southern new jersey or the state of delaware. with me now by phone is delaware gover
the advantage. the romney campaign says they're doing much better than john mccain's campaign. >> just getting back to florida real quickly, you mentioned mitt romney's events there, one exactly where you are at the moment. but what is he going to be focusing on specifically in florida? who is he targeting? >> reporter: he's going to be targeting early voters for sure, but also he's going to be targeting those remaining undecided voters. also one of the other missions today is to kind of excite the base, the republicans and conservatives here in florida and get them out to the polls. he's going to be joined in all three stops by senator marco rubio, the freshman senator here, a very popular republican. he's also going to talk about the economy. that's really his wheelhouse. yesterday's gdp report was pretty favorable. the obama campaign saying this is proof that the economy is starting to rebound, but mitt romney in a big speech in iowa on the economy said just the opposite. >> today we received the latest round of discouraging economic news. last quarter, our economy grew at just 2%. after th
trading normal session and electronic session. john brady, as a trader what have you been doing all week stocks futures is closed, there has been limited trading. what have you guys been doing? >> we've been reading a lot of polls and newswires regarding next week's election. a couple things have the market's attention, not just the storm. friday we have employment number. that number could see sizable revisions to the crazy september nonfarm payroll number about in early october. likewise we're following polls. seems that the raise is pretty close. it may be tilting one way. we're trying to get a bead on and handicap the what market as trading will be. >> john brady, very interesting. about the market report on friday and election next tuesday. where are markets going to open tomorrow by the way? >> i think stocks open a little lower. nasdaq probably 10 lower. you will see a rush of trading at opening. it will be quiet. >> john brady, rg o'brien guys. there is the word from the trading floor. back to you guys. nicole: thank you, sandra smith. tomorrow's opening sure to be busy one with
before tuesday's election. it's the october johns report from the government will be released in just about 90 mosts. both the obama campaign and the romney campaign hope the numbers will boost those economic arguments they've been making through this campaign and right into the final days of the race. we have complete coverage of what to expect this morning. let's begin with christine. she's got a look at what we could see. >> could see an unemployment rate that kicks up to about 7.9%. that's the forecast of economists surveyed by cnn money, soledad. 125,000 jobs added overall. for net new job creation. the important thing here is the trend. and it is the trend that has been so important to american families. american workers. and the two political campaigns, quite frankly. the president took office with unemployment rate at 7.8%, soledad. and then embarked on a massive stimulus plan and unemployment rate kept rising to 10%. but then started to come down. started to come down and is now back at 7.8%. and we got that number, of course, last month. and that was a big surprise overall.
and a chunk of new york city goes dark. john miller takes us along as the nypd responds to a historic emergency on "cbs this morning." halloween's here and we're at walmart with amanda talking about the walmart low price guarantee. that's your receipt from another store? you know it! let's put it to the test. butterfinger! nestle crunch! baby ruth! oh my gosh, i love candy! and if you find a lower advertised price they'll match it at the register. that means i can buy more! oh my, gosh! that's the walmart low price guarantee! see for yourself! bring in your last receipt and see how much you can save. save more on the candy your family loves with hauntingly low prices on all their nestle favorites. get more halloween for your money, guaranteed. walmart! ready or not, here i come!

to agree they have a much superior ground game than the one john mccain had in 2008 which a lot of people describe as almost nonexistent. they think they've almost closed the gap if not matched the obama ground game. the perception is it seems like it's right. the obama campaign does have a more robust operation on the ground. >> i think, you know -- >> joy ann -- >> go ahead, craig. >> i was going to say, you've got to think in a race that is as close as this one that the turn out to vote effort over the next week or so really could make the difference. >> absolutely. you look at what's going on right behind you and the way the democrats have sort of created an event, almost a carnival around voting because they rely so much on running up as much early vote as they can, this year they're adding the that, trying to cut into the republican dominance among absentee. one of the reasons republicans don't ever seem to have a ground game is a lot of what republicans do is they push for absentees and push for votes on election day. i remember in 2004 when i was working on the other side in campa

? believe it or not, this guy thinks he has an idea, a researcher at johns hopkins has put together a model predicting how many of us may lose power. remember, irene left 7 million without electricity. >> our model is suggesting roughly 10 million. >> reporter: 10 million who could be without power for a week or more. so we're talking about 50 million people may feel the effects of this storm. that means one in five potentially could see their lights go out. so if you're inland, and you don't think that these waves and this coastal impact is going to affect you, think again, it could be a bad one, dan and bianna. >> it will go well inland. we know that. from the meteorologists. david kerley, thank you for your reporting this morning. >>> meanwhile, 5,000 miles to the west there is another breaking story we're watching closely right now. a massive earthquake off the west coast triggered a tsunami warning for hawaii downgraded to an advisory, our worst fears quelled for now at least. now our affiliate in miami reports. >> reporter: very serious in hawaii. the civil defense calling for an evac
on mechanics. and while the romney campaign is certainly a lot better than john mccain's 2008 operation, the more this race focuses on mechanics, the better it is probably for the obama campaign. asked whether the storm could affect early voting, the president said that remains to be seen. >> we don't anticipate that at this point, but we're obviously going to take a look. >>> well, it's the october surprise. that we know. and the thing we don't know is what is exactly the impact going to be? we've got a lot of storm coverage to get to, and we'll get to that next. we'll go to point pleasant beach, new jersey. the storm is already kicking up serious waves there. we'll also head to florida. a state that knows storms well. that's where the president was supposed to be this morning opinion bmorning, but sandy forced a last-minute schedule change. debbie wassermann schultz will join us. >>> plus, we've got a slew of new swing state polls. what's this about minnesota? what do those minnesota numbers really tell us about where and how this race is tightening. >>> but first, we made a big deal
begin our mega coverage, my colleague, john berman is down in battery park city, which pretty well can be expected to get battered as the namesake is. sandy is turning towards the shore and picking up speed. give me a bit of a read from your location. >> reporter: it's really been an interesting place to be all morning. about two hours ago, i was standing in 8 inches of water right here. it was up past my ankles. what happened was after high tide here in morning, there was a small storm surge. the water came up over this seawall right here and began to flood this area. this is the evacuation zone in lower manhattan, some 370,000 people have been told to get out from here and also the other boroughs in new york city to evacuate, get to a friend's place uptown, get to a hotel or to one of the 76 emergency evacuation centers throughout the city. they're expecting a storm surge of anywhere between six and 11 feet. that's a lot. we saw at high tide this morning it come over the wall here, that was a mere fraction of what it will be tonight at about 8:50. that's high tide tonight. with this
, john bolton. good morning. >> good morning. >> we have this -- the reporting by jennifer griffin there were three calls on the ground in benghazi for help. she broke the story. the order came back, stand down. don't go. what's your reaction? >> and request for outside assistance denied. they put out a statement friday we never said no to requests for help. the white house is trying to portray the president as saying do whatever it takes. but in the defense department there's more contradiction, panetta says the african command agreed no reinforcement should be sent to benghazi. that's not what general ham is reported to have said to the congressman. i think the picture we have of the administration is a lot of fingers pointing different directions and no clear pictures as to what actually happened. i think the only place you can trace this to is the white house. in any administration i've served in, it would be inconceivable to me that as this attack began and unfolded, the president wasn't in the center of things. he's not going to be making tactical decisions, but the vibes tha
belts. making me nervous. >> massive cover-up or incompetence? very strong words from senator john mccain on the administration's handling on the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi libya that killed four americans including our u.s. ambassador. mrz lawmaker calling for the immediate release of all surveillance video gathered during that deadly attack. national security correspondent jennifer griffin joins us live with the late. what requests went unanswered according to your sources? >> remember, my source was on the ground at the c.i.a. annex. i'm told about 9:40 when the first shots were heard, woods and other operators asked the c.i.a. base chief for permission to go help at the consulate. they were told to stand down, quote, stand down. base chief was in radio contact with the station chief. u.s. officials say the base chief was trying to arrange libyan help. approximately 10:30 woods and his team asked important per mission to help and they were told to stand down. at that time they disobeyed orders, they were armed and climbing walls all the way to the consulate which i wa
a mile from here. this is the "john b. caddell." it's been around since 1941. there was no one on it, nothing on it. let's stop for a second. to give people a bearing. people don't know staten island or new york. this is front street. this is actually a street so it ended up on the asphalt. this is the narrows. lower manhattan is right over there. and if we pan over here, there is the verrazano narrows bridge to let you know. and it was moored on the other side of that. you guys watch out. there are flares all over the place here. but staten island is just devastated here. people are coming out with their kids. no school, obviously, can't get to work. and there's just no public transportation and they've been coming here to see this sight because it looks like something out of a movie. don't get hit with this. it's just unbelievable. and they've been taking pictures. and just can't believe this but we're moving on from here. back to you, amy. unbelievable sight. >> it certainly shows the force and power of sandy. michelle charlesworth, thanks so much. >>> we want to go to more devast
the company. john browett's departure is immediate. he cut staffing hours at apple's retail stores, a traditional retail move to improve profits but which, at apple, undercut what some describe as ambassadors of apple's brand who guide customers to in-person technical support. scott forstall's software division replaced google maps with apple's own maping application that suffered heavy criticism from iphone five customers. apple admits the retail cutbacks were a mistake and has apologized for weaknesses in its mapping application. boeing is delaying the delivery united continental. the airline picked up its first 787 in september. the timetable for the next delivery is unclear. meanwhile, boeing reportedly is closing a deal to sell 35 of its redesigned 737 aircraft to russia's aviation capital services. that deal is said to be worth $3.5 billion. billionaire warren buffett is taking his own advice. after mentioning he'd make an investment by purchasing a "couple hundred thousand single-family homes," buffett's berkshire-hathaway seems to be betting on residential real estate sale
. joining us now by phone is senior earnings analyst. john, i do want to ask you, what do you make of all these companies making these moves? are they justified do you think in changing the game when wall street is pretty much looking to open tomorrow? >> well, i think for the most part, the companies that have rescheduled earnings did so yesterday. as for today, most of the companies that were scheduled to report did report on time. i think net, net, the markets this won't be much of an impact in terms of the markets overall. in terms of the earnings impact going forward, most companies' third quarter ended back on september 30th. i think in terms of earnings perspective, most of the impact we'll see in the fourth quarter as opposed to the third. cheryl: i think, john, one of the reasons that it is disconcerting, if you will, is that you have major companies, i mean pfizer is now going to be reporting on november 1st. obviously the street has been waiting on that. people are placing, timing, if they can, on these reports, automatic data, mcgraw hill, all of these are delayed. do you thin

than john mccain was. there has been no engagement so there's -- there has been a better opportunity for him there, andrea. i think that's what you're seeing here a little bit and i think the obama campaign realizes they have to respond. >> and what about the des moines register editorial, we say editorials don't make a lot of difference but iowa is where barack obama got his first lift by beating the field in those caucuses back in '08. it's got to sting some. >> absolutely. it's a symbolic sting. there was that bizarre kerfuffle between the president, the white house, the campaign and the editorial board. how much did that contribute to this? i think iowa is more important to romney's math than even ohio. that's why they're trying to grab on to this to show that it's evidence of momentum. >> chuck todd, thanks so much from the white house today. and joining me to discuss the final week of campaigning, less than a week and the political impacts of sandy from the democrats' perspective is stephanie cutter. thanks for joining us. what do you do about the hurricane, lost time, lost abi
covering the tri-state area here. you've been in since early this morning, john than. thank you for sticking around. let's go through major things we've been talking about in this area. maybe the most dramatic visually is that crane. you have this super high-rise. they call it a billionaires apartment building in manhattan. what happened there? what's the situation now? >> 2:30, 3:00 this afternoon, huge wind gusts began hitting manhattan and this crane that had been inspected suddenly, you know, basically blew with the wind and went backwards and over and literally began dangling precariously over west 57th street here in midtown. so the fire department, the police department, emergency management officials responded to the scene, evacuated the surrounding buildings including a major hotel right there an 57th street. >> parker meridian. yeah. >> they're trying to figure out, what do we do with this? there's really not much they could do because the wind gusts, it's not safe to go up there and try to secure it at this time. they inspected it, said, look, we hope it holds. right
, as you say. rayberg is running against john tester in montana. he calls climate change mitigation policies unnecessary and economically destructive as though climate change itself is an economically destructive -- dean heller running for senate in nevada. oklahoma they call global warming a hoax. how worried we should be that we can ever address this problem if these guys continue to deny a problem exists? >> al: well, that is an extremely serious problem and it is not that part of the -- that part of the problem is not limited to climate. one of the reasons for the catastrophic invasion of iraq is the misleading statements led 3/4 of the american people to actually believe that the dictator of iraq, saddam hussein, was responsible for the attacks on 9-11 so many people thought that invasion was you know, the best way to exact revenge on the person who attacked us. it wasn't true. and the temptation to create an alternative reality completely divorced from the facts is greater when money dominates politics and they are
i checked, piers, he's the commander in chief. i can't imagine a john mccain not sending the american military in at the earliest possible moment and not worrying about what libya or libyans might have thought. it was clear for months that libya was incapable of protecting our diplomats. the british pulled out. the red cross pulled out. our diplomats were begging for more security and that consulate had been attacked twice, once with a hole 12 feet wide. what else did the president of the united states need? did somebody have to bang him on the head? what did he need to go in there and make sure that our people were properly protected? this is what happens when you elect someone president of the united states who isn't ready to lead. who wants the lead by following. >> do you believe as some republicans do that the white house or certainly people close to the white house were aware of what was happening on that fateful night and decided not to do anything? >> they either were aware of it and decided not to do anything or they were asleep at the switch. either one leads to
